Management Principles: Professional, Innovation, Quality, Practicality, Caring

Yao-Chien Wang, founder and president of the AMED Group was originally responsible for the business of a breast cancer pharmaceutical company, and often witnessed patients suffering from breast cancer being affected by changing the dressing for the wound. Under a certain opportunity, president Wang discovered the technique for UV hydrogel, not only capable of assisting in the healing of the wounds, but the characteristics of non adhesive and water-resistance also solved many of the issues for conventional dressing. Therefore, he devote into the development and application of UV hydrogel, hoping to introduce different choices to wound care.

President Wang believes that thorough wound care can only come with good products; other than improving through continuous R&D of UV hydrogel as the foundation, the AMED Group further adopts demands and opinions from patients and doctors as the direction for improvement, hoping to provide quality products and services, in order to help in the healing of wounds.

“Excelsior ” has always been the consistent perseverance and belief for president Wang. We constantly listen to the feedback of the markets, actively discover problems, striving continuously, based on the management indices of professional, innovation, quality, practicality and caring, as this is the enterprise spirit for the AMED Group.

Facility

Core Technique A+Gel Medical Grade Gel
The main ingredient for AMED’s latest generation of A+ Gel is based on the 2-Hydroxyethyl Methacrylate (HEMA) similar to contact lenses, capable of providing wounds with a high oxygen permeable moisturizing environment, where besides absorbing the wound fluid, maintaining moisture balance and stimulating wound healing, it also features the characteristic of non-adhesive after absorbing moisture, thereby protecting the new epithelial tissue, and further guide the fluid to the entire gel body through the T-shaped dispersion, therefore preventing the wound bed from being soaked.

Moisture-Balance Technique
The environment of the wound is not homogenous. For a wound, some part may have fluid too much, while some part may be too dry, hence it is difficult for it to be treated simultaneously using a common dressing. The unique moisture-balance technique of A+ Gel contains adequate moisture, which is capable of providing a moisturized environment for the wound that is too dry. Meanwhile, the gel body also features excellent moisture-absorbing capacity; hence it is capable of absorbing excess moisture content even when under the condition of over fluid, thereby preventing infection as a result of soaking and a delay in the healing time for the wound.

Retains Wound Growth Factors
When a wound occurs, the human body’s natural mechanism will gather growth factors on the wound to stimulate the healing. A common dressing will absorb the growth factors along with the fluid, but A+ Gel features the characteristic of selective absorption of fluid, where majority of the growth factors will be retained when absorbing the fluid, thereby accelerating the healing of the wound.
